Bio and Links
Bio Photo As of August 2011, I'm finally a permant resident of Australia ! Yea ! I now live in Cairns, Queenland, Australia. And as luck would have it directly across the street from the city cemetery ! I volunteer for the Cairns City (aka Martyn Street)Cemetery as well as the Mcleod Street Pioneer Cemetery. So if you would like a photo from any of these cemeteries please email me directly. They will be done at no charge as a volunteer from Findagrave.
You MUST Place in Subject Line"Cemetery Photos" or they will be deleted without viewing.
If you find any errors or wish to assume management of any of the memorials I have posted, please email me with "Cemetery Photos" in Subject Line other wise it goes into the bin and I never get it.
G'Day Mates ! No Worries !

RE: McLEod Cemetery Listings
Thanks Richard.

I have had a bit more of a look into it and I think there are 2 ways that it could be done:

1. YOu send me a list of listings you want to change (name and url) to my email kdarnie at gmail dot com and i will transfer ownership of the listing to you (i dont need it back).
2. YOu make the edits to the listings via the edit function. I will then approve all you edits.

Me making the changes would be a duplication of effort for both of us i think.

Please email me to the above address if you would like to discuss further, otherwise i am happy for you to make a decision and start the process.

RE: McLEod Cemetery Listings
Hi Richard

Im not sure exactly where I got them from, they were in a spreadsheet and I dont have the original file.

Depending on the number of issues, I can either make the changes myself or I can just transfer ownership of the listing to you.

Let me know what would be best.

RE: McLeod Cemetery Names Plaques
Yes, any information on my cousin Hugh Grier #60857787 would be greatly appreciated. You could just add it to the memorial, or send it - fay_carmichael at msn dot com

He had a wife Mary and four children, but I couldn't find any of their names listed in Australia's cemeteries.

Thank you, Fay

Richard - thank you SO much for going to so much trouble. Your photo is perfect.

My cousin will be thrilled with this new information. Hugh was the brother of her great-grandfather who was married to my great-grandfather's sister.

Wouldn't they be amazed at what we go through to find out more about their lives?!!

Thank you so much for searching. If on your visits you ever wish to just photograph the plot, that would be fine.

And thank you for all the work you have done for Find A Grave over the years - greatly appreciated.

Congratulations on your Australian citizenship - we have found several cousins who have immigrated there from Ireland over the years. They love it!
